I have no idea how to do this problem. Ha. See if any of this looks right: p + q = 1 (p + q) * (p + q) = p^2 + 2pq + q^2 = 1 Okay. Let p = freq(T) Let q = freq(t) then through Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium calculation: q^2 = (102/320) Gene...

The ability to taste or not to taste is genetic. Tasting is a dominant phenotype but seems to be variable in its expressivity: some tasters are "supertasters," and are assumed to be those individuals who...

If you're crossing BbTt x BbTt, the proportion of bbT_ would be 3/16. When doing a dihybrid cross, 9/16 are dominant for both traits, 3/16 are dominant for one and recessive for the other, 3/16 are the other way around, and 1/16 is...

Okay. You have 150 tasters and 215-150 = 65 nontasters. q^2 = 65/215 = .302 q = 0.55 freq(t) = q = 0.55 (answer) freq(T) = p = 1-q = 0.45 (answer) Check that: p^2 + 2pq + q^2 = 1 .45^2 + 2 * .45*.55 + .55^2 = 1 check 215 * (.45^2 + 2 * .45*.55) = 150 check 215 * (.55^2) = 65 check

Since it is a dominant trait you must be heterozygous. So if P=taster, your mother is pp, father is Pp (because your brother is a non-taster so pp) and so you are Pp.
